Book Summary

This time, there's a storm brewing...Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck - and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

Media Reviews

"Razor-sharp dialogue, a tautly controlled pace and enough homicides for a miniseries. What more could fans want?" - Kirkus Reviews

"Starred Review. Sharply drawn characters, intricate plotting, and smooth dialogue make this a sure-fire winner." - Publishers Weekly

"[I]ncludes most of the elements readers expect: sharp plot, snappy dialogue, and believable action, but the background playfulness and gallows humor that usually fill in the gaps are in short supply. But hey, that’s nitpicking. On balance, this is another fine entry in a wildly popular series." - Booklist
